Welcome back to The Polygon and welcome to Key Stage 4. Hope you had a good summer as the hard work begins now. This is the start of an important time in your education.
Some of you will be beginning your qualification courses, these are opportunities to show the world all the knowledge you have gained while at The Polygon School. This will involve creating portfolio’s of work, completing controlled assessments and if we feel you are ready there may be an opportunity to sit an exam early.
To those in Year 11 this will be a challenging year. You will have the pressure of college applications, coursework tasks and your final exams. This will be the final push and will play a key part in moulding your future. Worry not as we will be there to guide you through it all. There is always a friendly face to offer support or advice as you take the next step.
It’s not all work in Key Stage 4 however. We will have the chance to build strong bonds in the tutor group and have fun along the way. Miss Burton and myself are proud to have you in our tutor group this year and wish you all the best for the future.
Mr Morley and Miss Burton.
